1. Fill out a Proposal Form
The Proposal Form is key to planning and delivering the John Muir Award. It enables us to agree, confirm and register your John Muir Award involvement. Use it for Discovery, Explorer and Conserver level. Send a copy of your Proposal Form to firstname.lastname@example.org at least two weeks before the start of your activity. If you are applying for funding for your project please talk to us about how you can add value to your project by including the Award.
2. Get started
Get started, get outside and get active!
3. Review your activity
Before requesting your certificates, make sure that each person has met John Muir Award Criteria. You can use this simple Four Challenge Review to help gauge this. Certificates are provided free of charge but cost us £1 each to produce and post. Please consider making a donation to our Wild Action Fund to help cover the cost of your certificates and support the John Muir Award.
